About this Event

ONLINE WEBINAR:

“What is it like caring for a parent living with dementia from a distance?”

SPEAKER: Dr Sarah Robertson

(University of Liverpool, Mersey Care NHS Trust)

Overview of talk: Geographical distances are growing amongst generations. However, we know very little about long distance carers. Every caring context is different and needs to be understood. Hearing the stories of long distance carers can help us to understand their unique, emotional, psychological and social needs. Dr Robertson recruited people who identified as long distance carers for their parent. The talk will focus on aspects of identity, emotional experiences, practical challenges carers faced and interaction with services. These stories provide insight into the needs and experiences of long distance carers, which can help us design interventions in such a way that minimizes the impact of the distance and improves the chance of a positive experience caring.
